The Christmas Giving Tree
Thank you for your support of the Giving Tree program that allowed the Parish to help families at Christmas. Once again Parishioners were very generous and we were able to help 105 adults and 111 dependents in our community. A value of $19,619 were collected in gift cards.
St. Dominic’s elementary school donated $2500.00 in gift cards in addition to helping families in their school. They also did a food collection for our pantry. St. Paul Secondary School took on seven families and provided food and gift cards as well as the other families they supported within the school. It is wonderful to see the family/school/parish support that we can achieve in this community. Thank you to the teachers, principals: Julie Tollis and Jim Horvath and Chaplain, Jim Mc Levey.
The recipients were truly touched by your generosity. They included single parents who did not know how they were going to find the extra funds; families dealing with crippling illnesses that takes all their money and resources; people who have lost their jobs; families who have lost their parents; new Canadians; and people who cannot make ends meet on their meager incomes. Thank you for your support of community outreach. Each food gift card, $5.00 coffee card and card to buy toys or gifts makes a huge difference. When we all work together, we can accomplish much in Christ’s name.
